Rain, Carnage and Cash on Mile of Mayhem Night

Just as the season ending Monster X Metal and Gold Eve of Destruction events were set to start, the rains came and made the Birch Run Speedway a muddy mess. A full house of frenzied spectators and drivers were not deterred as the show went on to the delight of everyone!

Drivers from all over the state came to participate in the destruction, resulting in several races for each event. 24 drivers signed up for the Pull race and the drivers that got soaked first taking the checkered was the team of Justin Pepitone and Gerry Persails Jr. Charlie Boone and Jason Navarre ended up in second. The second race saw Anthony Richardson continue his winning ways by pulling Greg Long to victory. Brent Voris and Todd Nelson came in second.

23 drivers checked in for the Push races. A pair of competitors from the weekly Truck Series teamed up to take the first checkered flag as Zack Lopez pushed Paul Rigda to the win. Race number two witnessed the duo of Anthony Richardson and Greg Long pick up another win.

A slick surface from the combination of rain, mud and engine fluids made getting around the flagpoles even trickier for the 32 drivers that entered the Flagpole races. John Weiland won his first race of any kind when he picked up the checkers in race one. The second race went to Aaron Abeare as he mastered slinging his car sideways around the tires. Jacob Armstrong took his number 82 to victory in race three while David Thompkins took the lead on the final lap from Neil Beukema to claim the final checkered in the Flagpole races.

The Back to School Bus race featured the usual craziness of the two busses on the track, but coupled with 28 competitors it made keeping an eye on the leader difficult. After the bus lights went off for the final time and the checkered flag waved, it was Todd Nelson in a Pontiac Grand Prix pulling into victory lane ahead of Aaron Abeare, Charlie Boone, Brent Voris and Randy Wing.

During intermission, the crowd witnessed Jon “The Enticer” Parish jump a Cadillac through a motorhome in the intersection of the Figure 8. With the “Dukes of Hazzard” theme blaring over the speakers and pyrotechnics sizzling behind the decommissioned motorhome, the young daredevil successfully crashed through and landed on the other side. Jon was ok after the jump, but the car was done for the night. While Mike’s Wrecker Service helped clean up the mess, the 50/50 winner was drawn and they walked away a cool $1,247 dollars richer. Three other lucky number holders got their chance in the United Financial Credit Union Cash Machine to grab some cash. And thanks to B&S Heating and Cooling some lucky youngsters walked away with some new bikes.

The highly anticipated Mile of Mayhem event, which consisted of using the Figure 8, parts of the third mile and the 4/10 mile with some slaloms put in place on the backstretch was up next. 27 brave drivers entered and after one red flag, several close calls at the intersection and a lot of beating and banging and mud slinging, Anthony Richardson was able to do some watered down donuts on the front stretch after putting his number 422 in victory lane. Following Richardson across the line were Zack Lopez, Brent Voris, Brian Mead and Rodney Nettleton.

Justin Pepitone grabbed the victory in the School Bus Figure 8 race while his Team80 Motorsports partner Gerry Persails Jr grabbed the win in the Trailer Figure 8 race. The trailer decorating contest was won by Steve Plummer.

On Saturday October 23rd the Birch Run Speedway and Event Center will play host to the Birch Run/Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce “Trucks, Trunks and Treats” from 1-4. The event is a FREE family-friendly Halloween event featuring touch-a-truck activities, trunk-or-treat and other fun things to do!

Come dressed in costume and be one of the first 300 attendees to get a donut. Plus, participate in the costume contest and win great prizes from local businesses!
